Disillusioned by her glitzy life in London and her desirable but cruel TV-presenter boyfriend, Rosie Richardson chucks it all in and spends four years running a refugee camp in Africa. Then famine strikes in a nearby province and an influx of starving refugees threatens to overwhelm the camp. Frustrated by the cautious response of the aid agencies, Rosie decides on a drastic short-term solution. She returns to London, breaks back into the celebrity circuit and brings the celebs out to Africa for a star-studded TV emergency appeal. 'A champion first novel . . . what makes it such a pleasure to read is its variety of tone: flip, flirtatious, serious, mocking and moving . . . get hold of a copy of this book' Observer 'A terrific achievement . . . The camp scenes are as moving and funny as the original M.A.S.H.; she sends up the self-important "mediacracy" with an insider's wit, and it's written at a romping pace with a cliff-hanger finish' Cosmopolitan 'Sharp, gutsy and refreshing' Independent 'Thoughtful, ironic and completely gripping' Harry Enfield 'A brilliantly funny satire' Time Out

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Caus Celeb I thought this was a terrific story written in the nineties but still sadly very relevant today.....funny, tragic, houmoursly romantic but most of all a very serious subject that continues to repeat itself today....famine in Africa.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not worth the read I started reading the book and realized I had made a mistake in buying. I did not finish the book as I was unable to read that nonsense.
